London: Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has rejected claims that there is player revolt against him, saying that he felt sad to hear such accusations.
Mourinho's job has come under scrutiny due to Chelsea's poor start of the season, with just one win from the four Champions League games they have played.
Earlier, midfielder Cesc Fabregas had also swept aside speculations that he is leading a bandwagon of players revolting against his manager and insisted that he shares an 'excellent relationship' with the embattled team manager.
Speaking on their poor performances, Mourinho said that he doesn't want to blame anyone, adding that everything is football-related.
According to the Mirror, the 52-year-old, however, believes that his side will qualify to the last 16 of the Champions League when they will lock horns with Dynamo Kyiv on November 5.
Meanwhile, in the Premier League, Chelsea are currently at the 15th spot, having lost six of their first 11 league matches this season.
Mourinho was also given a one-match stadium ban besides being penalized 40,000 pounds after admitting misconduct charge issued by the Football Association.
As a result of the ban, Mourinho will miss Saturday's game at Stoke City.
